See the Big Picture

When your assets are spread across many companies, it can be hard to ensure your overall investment strategy is meeting your goals. Consolidating your accounts with an account transfer puts you in a better position to take action because you can clearly see what’s working and what’s not.

With a consolidated portfolio, you can:

  • View your entire portfolio on one statement, if you consolidate with one company
  • Potentially lower your fees
  • Make better diversification and rebalancing decisions by spotting gaps and avoiding duplicate investment types
  • More easily manage risk as your situation changes and markets fluctuate
